View Level Timeline – Part 5

In 2008, to celebrate our 50th anniversary in San Francisco  we installed a timeline on the View Level at the ballpark which highlighted some of our great players and amazing moments.  We know that all of our fans are not able to come to a game at the park, or those who do may not be old enough to remember some of our alumni.  For this road trip we decided to showcase the timeline and give everyone a bit more information about the moments. The 1997 team, the final game at Candlestick and the first few years at PacBell/AT&T Park are all represented in these two panels.

For 15 years Lefty O'Doul was the much beloved manager of the San Francisco Seals

A San Franciscan, a Seal, a Giant, a bridge, a gate, baseball’s goodwill ambassador to Japan and an Irishman – who else could we celebrate on St. Patrick’s Day except Lefty O’Doul?
